Study blitz under way


Tara Murray

Are you – or a VCE student you know – in need some extra last minute help ahead of exams?

A Equal Ed and Brimbank council-led VCE study blitz can help.

The online program will offer study support across a number subjects.

Equal Ed’s Jeffrey Lai said the social enterprise had planned to run the blitz in person at the Sydenham Neighbourhood House, but it will now be held online because of lockdown restrictions.

“A lot of year 12’s, especially in the area at the end of the year, are looking for some extra support,” he said.

“Some are struggling and it’s a stressful time for them. Through Sydenham Neighbourhood house we will have tutors and offer different strategies and free support.”

Mr Lai, along with Edward Le and Liam Cross, has previously provided support at the house during exam time in 2018 and 2019.

So far more than 30 people have pre-registered for sessions this year.

Mr Lai said the past two years had been hard for students and teachers.

“A lot of people are zoomed out and maybe something taught a different way might help.”

Sessions start next week and will run until October 19.
